Good morning! I started the day with a nice 4 mile run in the dark by myself. It was very peaceful. The weather is amazing this winter!!

Joy, love that tree!! We don't have any trees blooming yet, but they will soon. I've seen daffodils.

Mayie, I hope your headache goes away soon. Also, I hope you get some warm temps! Brrr!!!

Good morning, Caz!!

Good morning, Cat!

Judy, that's exciting news!! A former neighbor of ours (she was a small girl last time I saw her) adopted two of her foster children about two months ago. They've been in her care for two years, and everyone is so excited!! Now they want to adopt the baby they are fostering, but that will probably be a year down the road.

Good morning everyone who isn't on here yet today -- Gaye, Susan, Patti, Verna! I hope I didn't miss anybody.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Neighbor's tree, mine are not far behind. Unheard of for Feb.! Already in the 70's this morning and I'm headed outside. Calm now, but strong winds on the way. Everything seems to come with a price. Great day yesterday! All is well. Hang in there, spring is coming!

Awoke with a headache which seems to want to stick around. Winter temperatures have returned, -14C with wind chill of -21C. On the plus side, the sun is shining. Hope you all have a lovely day.

I'm glad that at least so far, a nasty snow storm has stayed to the south of us! Took Sunny for a grooming today -- she was so shaggy. Disadvantage off small town living is that I have to drive about 20 miles on country roads each way, then go back and pick her up, so it pretty much takes a good portion of the day. Got good news yesterday that if all the wheels keep turning my daughter & her hubby will be able to complete the adoption of their 2 little foster girls, 4 & 6, sometime in April! I can't wait to be a grandma!

I was a serious Ruth Stout fan in the 60's and 70's. Still use a lot of her organic principles. Container gardening and raised beds are a good way to go until you know your seasons and soil. Have fun!

Good Morning All, Been online far too long already this morning; family stuff. DD going through a rough patch healthwise and DS a rough patch learning to live single. Complicated, I think emailing helps them sort things out and I'm glad to be on this end. Life is still good. GGS comes this afternoon so I need to finish up here and get to the grocery. Out of fresh fruit, a favorite for him. This afternoon he'll be digging up dinosaurs I buried in the sandbox yesterday.
Gaye, I would think you could garden in FL year around. ?? Let us know how it goes. So much to be done in my yard the change of any seasons. I did clear out one bed yesterday and got the rosebushes planted. Started cutting the lariope back, a long labor intensive job as It borders 3 large flower beds and I do it by hand with pruners. The other options just tear it up and make a mess. Lirope seen here on the near side of the holly tree. Must go! Enjoy your day!

Good morning. I had a bad start for today. I got up and got ready for work and then I could not find my glasses. I missed my van and the first bus going into work and I was able to catch the next bus in but it made me late. Luckily my supervisor was understanding and I will not be charged any leave.

Good morning! Gaye, so nice to know your name :-)

Leg day today. My legs are still wobbly, and I finished an hour ago.Our weather is great today!! I wish I didn't have to be stuck inside, but bills have to be paid somehow. I wish I could make money just by hanging out and doing whatever strikes my fancy at any given moment. Haha. Since my lottery ticket wasn't a winner, that's not going to happen.

Thanks for the name, Gaye. We all have our moments of (fill in the blank) and we seem to draw strength from one another. A very good team.
My Sheltie went for a teeth cleaning today and the vet couldn't get the three rooted tooth out so he may have to go back for surgery after she consults with a specialist. Can't wait!
I bowled today and did so poorly as did most of my team. Ugh. There are days that it doesn't pay to go. If it wasn't for the friends I might pass once in awhile. NAH!

Been reading all your posts, drawing strength from them. The last two days haven't been good - so I'm going to turn the anxiety,grief and loss over into a moment of gratitude. Each day is a new day -sweep away the old bring in the new and forge ahead. Thank you Team for your posts of courage and optimism. I wasn't going to share this but I had to put this out there.
Can't wait to start gardening , can't wait to take a long walk to a friend's house while the weather is pleasant. Going to take pictures too of the native trees and plants (no Palm trees) on my walk.
Oh yeah - my name is Gaye.

Jeri, I have that issue with my eyes now driving. I'm fine during the day and on well lit city streets but anywhere dark looking into light presents a problem. Even at the pageant, in the dimmed auditorium looking at the lit stage I was looking at duets where there should have been solos if I didn't cover one eye. Alas, I went unprepared. I can fix it and keep my peripheral vision when driving by putting a piece of electrical tape down the center of my left lense. Peels off clean and can be use several times if kept clean. I keep several strips on a glass jar, already cut in my car. Back when this all started:

Post surgery, Oct. 2015. My first outing, I wasn't driving yet seeing double in the distance all the time. This was a pair of dollar store glasses that I popped one lense out and taped the other. I had two pair to alternate and keep both eyes "awake". Keep that tape handy for early mornings; safer than closing your eye. Hugs.

Good morning. It's a lovely day. My eye felt a little sore when I first woke up, sort of like I was punched in the eye. But that feeling slowly went away. The drive to work was difficult due to the darkness/headlight issue. I had to close my left eye in oncoming traffic. I ran 6.75 miles on the indoor track this morning. So the morning is starting off well.

Joy, your boy brings you so much happiness. I love to see your posts!

Good Morning All! Slept in again today, this outdoor time and GGS time really wears me out! But in a good way. I never did get that rosebush planted yesterday but the sandbox was a big hit!

The big tire in the background was the sandbox for the older grands, holding 3-4 at a time; for many years. I didn't expect to be around for another generation and turned it into a planter! So glad God had other plans. GGS is happy with his little sandbox.

It's wet out this morning but clearing. I definitely will get that rosebush in today! With cover's handy for the cold days I'm sure we will have yet! Keep moving everyone!

Good morning to you too Patti emoticon
Joy my daffs are poking through too but we're set for cold weather again tomorrow apparently which is why I shall get in the garden today for a while. Tempted to cut the grass but it's still too wet! At least your family is supportive- many aren't!
Judy hope hubby feels better soon- then you can do all the decorating together!
Jeri I am sorry to hear of your vision problem, hope the laser has done the trick and I hope too that all goes well for your daughter's scan today.Praying for her to be cured and in good health once more.
Susan I send prayers for your dear mum and hope the eye specialist can help her. Your family is certainly being challenged with health problems but good to see Madison is through one session of Chemo.
Cat have I made you feel like you've got to get a wiggle on then?LOL
Verna glad you had such fun with your GK.

Well I'm getting in the garden while it's nice out there - and I don't think it'll last long, temperature has dropped already emoticon
Have a good one everyone!

Hey Ladies how goes the battle. Some are getting over a bug, some having eye troubles, some doing pretty good overall I see but no one is complaining so that is a good thing. No use complaining about something we have no control over!!!

We were looking after the youngest grandchildren Saturday night and what fun that was!! The 2 year old is just a ball of fun and laughter. He was so excited to see me on the couch in the morning it brought tears to my eyes. Hubby had forgotten his insulin so returned home and came back on Sunday to pick me up hence my sleeping on the couch.

Susan sorry to hear about your moms macular. It seems to be on the rise too. Never heard of it before I entered the golden years and now there are several people that have it. I too hope the specialist doesn't overbook again. Your mom seems to have a bit of ESP or maybe more than anyone realizes!! My mom was like that. Couldn't keep things from her for very long as she seemed to be able to sniff the air and know what was going on!!! I'm glad you aren't carrying the burden of keeping information from her about your bro. Should make your vacay a whole lot more relaxing. Got your suitcases packed yet?? It's good that Madison has the first week of chemo over with now for her numbers to bounce back. Praying.

Jeri I too hope your glaucoma pressure continues to go down and stays down. Your daughter's report is good so maybe she will be able to get the surgery over and done with earlier than anticipated. She remains on my prayer list as well.

Joy such a lovely daffodil gracing your garden. I love their color and odor and always buy them in support of a cancer cure. You did a lot of work getting that rose transplanted. I hope it likes its now home and graces your yard with numerous blossoms in summer. I know you will keep us posted.

Judy, 'tis the time of year when we are looking for change of some kind and anxious to get out doors. I hope your DH gets rid of his cough soon. Mine is coughing all night long and has been for a couple of weeks but it seems to be letting go the last two nights. Here's hoping!!

Caz I'm glad you feel in the mood of spring and are anxious to start spring cleaning. I expect to start soon as well but have geraniums to cut back and cuttings to plant first. I'd rather do that anyway!!

Cat, I'm still around. In fact we aren't going away this winter. Couldn't seem to make things click this time around for Mexico so we are thinking about November or beginning of December. I just don't feel comfortable about going this year, it seems every turn I made there was an obstacle so I suggested to DH that maybe we aren't meant to go. I've actually enjoyed winter this year even though I still haven't gotten out snowshoeing. When we did get all that lovely snow 2 weeks ago I came up with that sore throat, ears and headache business and that was when the sun came out and took all the snow away which ended up flooding our roads.

Mayie we have a little extra sunshine here so I'm packaging a bit up and sending it your way. When it does warm up in your country there will be lots of water flowing. Is there danger of flooding this year again? I have a very healthy fear of water and when I see ditches full I become very nervous and uneasy. Good thing we live on the very top of a hill!!

Hi Patti and Lynette hope all's well at your end.

Well, time is marching on and I was up early today so I'm thinking of sneaking into bed early tonight. Have a wonderful day tomorrow everyone.

Just today on my walk I noticed all sorts of crocus and daffodil greenery sprouted up. Not to mention the leaf buds on the trees and bushes.
A nice day here inspite of some wind.
We hit the gym early and walked early then off to walking at Costco.
Susan and Jeri, I'm sorry to hear of your and your mom's eye issues. But am glad to hear of your niece and daughters recovery status.
Caz, you could have kept quiet about spring cleaning.............................!!!! lol

Hello everyone,

just got home from my moms. We spent the entire day together. Unfortunately her eye appointment did not go well. She has macular degeneration but since her last appointment her right has has deteriorated quite a bit. Now she has to go back to the specialist she was to see last week and it was so over booked that she left. I hope they do not over book patients for her next appointment.She will now have to go every month for special drops that the specialist will need to put in.

Jerri, I pray your glaucoma pressure remains down and you do not have any further sight loss.
Glad to hear the good report on your daughter and I am praying for a full recovery for her.

Joy love the daffodil. We should be seeing some spring flowers soon with the mild temps we have been having . By the way Joy, I did not get my hair cut but I had curled it and pulled it back making it shorter looking. I am actually growing my hair length back. I hate it short and regret cutting it after my surgery.

CAZ, seems that spring is in the air all around and spring cleaning is what I will probably start when I get back from Vacation.

CAT, hope you are feeling better now. The flu bug has been making it's rounds everywhere. My one sis in law is trying to get over it before we leave on Vacation Saturday. I told her if she had a secondary infection with her cold, she could get antibiotics. Seems she had a sinus infection and now has meds and on the mend.

When with my mother today she told me that she felt my brother and his wife were holding back information on his health. My mom was surmising that he had developed liver cancer. I could not keep it to myself any longer that it appears that this is what has happened. There is one more blood test and a possible liver biopsy to do before giving 100% confirmation. Unfortunately because he has had cirrhosis for several years, it is a strong probability that it is cancer. My older brother died 9 years ago with liver cancer that developed after having cirrhosis for a few years. My niece Madison is holding her own and finished her first round of Chemo. Second round will begin as soon as her numbers start to come up again. Right now she has no immunity and is in isolation.

My mother is now considering flying out to British Columbia with me when I go. We will be waiting for a prognosis before going out but we will visit both Madison in Vancouver then fly to Powell River to stay and visit my brother and his family.

I had a chance at least to get out walking with my mom's dog so not a total loss for fitness. Tomorrow it is to be record breaking temps again and sunny and I will once again get out and try and do another long distance walk,

Well better get moving now and have a visit here with hubby who I have not seen all day.

I WILL NOT give it up!

Good morning!! Such a gorgeous day!! I woke up early and did a total body workout (my own stuff, not a program), and then went to the ophthalmologist for another glaucoma checkup. I was not pleased when I found out right off the bat that my pressure is still elevated in my left eye. It has been out of control now for two years, and I am beginning to have vision loss. We discussed my options, and I ended up having a laser procedure in the office. My pressure was down three points within 15 minutes after the procedure, so I am hoping that it continues to drop over the next few weeks. I go back in six weeks to see what's going on. It's frustrating, because I can do all sorts of things to control my general health, but there is nothing proactive that can be done for eye health. It's all reactive measures. Oh well.

My daughter met with her surgeon yesterday. She's having a scan tomorrow to see how effective the chemo was (all indications so far are that it was extremely effective), and then Friday she will set up her surgery date. It's all looking good, and hopefully she will be recovered sooner rather than later!

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

LOVE that daffodil, yellow being my favorite color -- always makes me feel happy! I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted here and of course took me a long time to catch up with everyone! So far I've avoided that nasty flu, but hubby is still coughing (although he feels pretty good otherwise), but boss is still at home today -- over a week. He actually went to the clinic on Saturday morning, and for a man to do that you know they are SICK! I just keep popping the Vit C and D3 and trying to eat healthy and get some exercise! Have had a very nice break with mild weather so I've gotten out for walks and also been able to walk to work. Cold and snow will be back by the weekend, however. I think I'm going to try those cinnamon pills if I can find them. I've tried increasing cinnamon, but it's hard to get an amount that will be helpful by adding it to food/recipes. I have spring fever for sure, as " in my mind" I am redecorating my house, rearranging furniture, checking out new furniture and accessories, etc..... I need to be able to get outside soon before I spend a lot of money!!!! emoticon

Good Morning All, Absolutely perfect day yesterday and I spent most of the day outdoors. Two good walks, one to the library to pick up a book on hold; now all I need is the time to read it. Rescued an old rose bush from a neighbors yard with permission from the gal that inherited it. It had been cut to the ground in their "clearing of overgrowth" efforts; but I knew where it was at. Bigger job than I planned on, fork, shovel, pick axe and hand axe big; but, once I started I had to finish. The graft at the base is the size of my two fists with 1.5 inch roots out the bottom. Don't know if it will survive but it's worth a shot. If it does you may see a picture later in the summer. This is far too early but VERY spring like here:

Many more on the way but rest assured they will be snowed on; happens once every spring and they bow to the ground popping back up unharmed after the thaw. Just like us!!

emoticon Mayie, this sun is for you! Hope the real thing finds you soon!

Jeri, Sounds like your sister's dog needs to be rehomed. She obviously can't control him and that's not good for either of them or you. There's a lab rescue in Winchester, it's where I got Sugar. They would find him a good home.

Alrocky, A lot of us here are gardeners; let us know how it goes. Part of my success is honoring Sugar's paths and acknowledging parts of the garden are hers and planting accordingly (indestructible plants). Container planting works well for cats although they don't really bother the garden that much. I mulch vulnerable pots with small rock. Mostly to deter squirrels but works to keep Xena out too. Plant wheat grass in pots for your cats, they love it! Give them what they need and they leave your stuff alone! Have fun, it's great exercise!

Susan, I love the new picture and shorter hairdo; it will be so much easier on vacation!

Cat, Hope you are feeling better today. emoticon Sending some to you too!
DGD was exhausted; ran on adrenaline all weekend. Nice that they had Monday off from school; she needed some downtime! But yes, very happy too!

Caz, My windows so need attention! They're on the list. emoticon Yes, family is great and should be celebrated; all families have challenges. Only problems if you let them be. GGS has a single Mom and she struggles but he's doing well because they both have a lot of family support. I struggle with her thought processes at times; but her decisions are her decisions. This stage has everyone busy all the time but if someone needs help, including me, we're there. Otherwise we don't see each other as much as you might think.

Patti, I love your consistency! Have a great day!

Judy, Anne, Verna I hope you're enjoying your week and the weather is being kind. Hugs all.

Hi everyone

Susan Family Day seems such a good idea- shame we don't adopt it here!
WTG on your 1/2 marathon! Glad you haven't done any damage to your hips.
Joy "the girl dun good" as we say over here. You are rightly proud of her, indeed all your grands, lucky to have such a loving family (for the most part anyways I know there have been some problems!)
May I hope your day improved hun. emoticon
Jeri glad you feel so much better!
Rocky do you enjoy gardening?

HI to Cat, Patti and Verna

Started my spring cleaning yesterday and got all the windows cleaned outside yesterday and their frames etc, today I'll finish up indoors, It's so beautiful out there I might weed the paths- can't get to the borders at the mo as the grass and earth are too wet from overnight rain....and I'm wary or bending down and getting up with these blessed hips right now so probably just as well..........................but at least I'll be outside!! emoticon

Bravo to your DDG, Joy. Bet she's thrilled.
Susan and Jeri are so similar in activities I thought I was reading a repost of one before I realized it was the other!! You two spin me around you are such goers!
Mayie, I don't have sun here either. But I did get in a walk before it started today.
Got up feeling a bit punky so passed on the gym. Tomorrow I'll go regardless of how I feel.
Patti, Cas, Verna, ALRocky, Judy, everyone else - howdy.

Hello Everyone, I feel so good right now because this morning I went out power walking. I did 8.25 miles before arriving home. I had fluids and a sandwich then decided to get moving again. I took turns with each of the 4 dogs taking them on half hour walks. I ended up doing 13.43 miles today which is a bit farther than a half marathon. I have to admit that my hips were certainly screaming at me after I came home and rested. When I got up I felt like the tin man needing oil.

Took a hot bath and 2 Tylenol and feel great again. Tomorrow we are supposed to have rain in the afternoon so I am going to my mom's early enough to get out power walking with her dog Benji. he is fast and a great walker so I give him 5-10 mins at the beginning of the walk to do his business then it is down to business of power walking.

I am feeling awesome tonight and hope the feeling lasts. I want to get out again Wednesday for a distance power walk again.

Have a great evening everyone.

Woke up determined to make some little changes in my life. Reading your posts and sparkpages are very motivating and inspirational. My husband just bought a big bag of potting soil so I can begin to plant. Hopefully the gazillion cats๐Ÿ˜ฝ๐Ÿ˜ฝ (9 or 10 maybe 11) and dogs ๐Ÿถ (4) will mind their own business (fat chance ๐Ÿ˜ƒ)!! No problem.

Checking in. I woke up this morning feeling good, and I went for a 3 mile run with my friend. It was very dark, and very foggy. I told her it's the first day in forever that I haven't felt like I'm in a fog -- and I was literally in fog!! Haha. Honestly, I started with those horrible medicine side effects and couldn't eat, and then as I recovered from them, I ended up with a mild case of flu. Thursday and Friday my temperature was staying 101F. Saturday and Sunday I still felt worn down, but I rested most of the weekend. This morning I felt great!!

I had to go Saturday night and help my sister get her big dog back in her house. She said "Walt" let him out. I said, "I don't know Walt, but I think Walt should have stayed and helped you get him back in!" I have no idea who Walt is, but it was rude for him to let the dog loose and then not try to get him back. She probably made him up. Walt is probably Walt Disney. Who knows with her?? Anyway, her dog came galloping up to me (he's large), and I grabbed him by the collar. I had to take him down the muddy hill to her front door. At one point he jumped up onto a concrete block foundation of a driveway that was about chest high to me. He twisted my shoulder, and he scratched my arm. It was raining and cold, and I was twisted, scratched and bruised. Yesterday I could barely change my clothes because of wrestling with her dog. I told her I didn't appreciate having to stand in the rain with her dog when I had a fever just 24 hours before that. I'm just glad I finally woke up feeling refreshed today! It's been about a month since I've actually felt good.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good morning all.

As Susan mentioned, it is Family Day here in Canada. Unfortunately I have none of the sunshine of which she spoke. It is grey and overcast with drizzle and showers predicted. The current temperature sits at +1C and may even rise another degree. With the snow melting it's that dirty time of year when streets are impassible in places and one is in danger of being swamped by cars racing through the water. I got very little walking in yesterday and although just not feeling it today either I will force myself to drop off the latest library read. I have a small turkey in the oven since the balcony can no longer be used as a freezer.

JOY: You are obviously so proud of your girl and with good reason. I love how close and supportive your family is.
CAZ: Congrats on lengthening your walks. You definitely have a welcoming venue. As a child I grew up near the ocean and miss it very much. Here in Manitoba the only ocean I see is oceans of wheat fields . . .
Hope that everyone else is having a great day.

Good Morning All! Really great pageant wind up last night and our girl did well. All the nightmare media coverage I've seen on pageants----none of that here! These girls are so supportive of each other. Four in her division from her school and they were cheering each other on; parents too! I don't have any single pictures, yesterday's was from last year. Photos weren't allowed in the auditorium and I'm glad. Cell phones being held up in front of you really ruin the view! The girls were inseparable when not on stage so no individual pictures yet. Should be some professional photos; but they have not been posted yet. She did well, I don't post pictures without permission and don't even ask outside family so none yet. Yesterday's picture was from her first pageant last year. No recognition in that one. Really did well this year and was first runner up. Plus the Spirit award and others that I still don't know. Lot's going on!! From my DD last night:
" We found out tonight that xxxxxx had the highest scoring solo in the teens. However the score on the classes and interview were higher on the other girls so they had more overall points. Too bad they don't give a highest solo score award as she would have won! But we are all very proud of how she did. But something to look forward to in upcoming competitions. " Susan, not sure of her career plans; think they may be more along the lines of sports medicine. But, dance can bring scholarships and at the very least a way to pay her way through college teaching. I think it will always be part of her life. She's passionate about it!
I'm looking at yardwork and errands today. Stay well and have fun! Hugs.

Good Morning everyone,
we are celebrating Family Day here in Canada today. Our day has begun with plenty of sunshine that I will be taking advantage of with a lengthy power walk shortly. Wind is low and temperature is rising and is presently at 33F.

I can now say I am over the flu bug that plagued me all last week. BY Saturday I felt at 85% and yesterday 100% so was able to enjoy my friend's birthday party in Toronto. There were 50 people there and quite the party and a very exclusive restaurant. There was an open bar and our choice of dinner was either prime rib, chicken or salmon. I decided to be daring and for the first time I tried salmon and really enjoyed it.
I indulged in a couple glasses of Pino Gregio as well so I will be working a few extra workouts to make sure that I have not added any pounds to the waistline.

We leave Saturday for our vacation and I hope the week goes by quickly. While away I hope the time goes slowly.

Joy I love the photo of your granddaughter on stage and congratulations to her for all of her awards won. Does she plan on making dance her career? This is what my granddaughter will be continuing to study in college in September.

Sending out best wishes to everyone for a fabulous day and a "sparktacular" week ahead.

Joy FANTASTIC! 5 awards!! Can't wait for the photos.
Cat glad you've recovered,
ALROCKY2 emoticon to the thread, do we call you by your spark name or can we know your real name? Look forward to chatting with you.

Hope Jeri and Susan are okay, I think Susan was in Toronto celebrating, maybe she'll surface later.

Had a lovely walk yesterday with DH, got as far as the Pier Hotel (furthest since this bothering hip started) so progress!!
Light workout this morning then depending on the weather might get my windows cleaned.

It seems I've recovered from the marathon cleaning job yesterday. Slept more soundly in any case. Not sure what the day will bring. It is calm and grey out there but haven't as yet checked the temperature. Sidewalks are slippery so tend to walk on the street to prevent myself from falling.
Have a wonderful Sunday all you lovely ladies.

Good Morning All, Taking it easy this morning; seems I pay a price after a very active day now. Especially yard work, those muscles have gotten lazy---easy does it CAZ. May, 6 hours of cleaning would do that to me too; hope you were able to relax last night! I did sleep well. Going to DGD's pageant this afternoon; she has been there all weekend but the "audience" portion (performance) is this afternoon. I have never been to one of these, think I missed last year because it would have been too long a day for me. I think all the "talent" is dancers but am not sure. This is an invitation thing and I am in absolute awe of her! Will be interesting.

Cat, we're having a 60's-70's week, with scattered rain. If the rain holds off he'll be in that sandbox Tuesday! He loves to "play in the dirt". Smiles.

Morning all
Joy I am just dying to get into the garden, still a bit unsure about the ole sciatica so giving it a few more days to be sure, but we had a good walk this morning......so that's encouraging!
Patti those are the best kinds of days- glad you enjoyed it.
Cat nothing like a good pamper session!
May that's a lot of cleaning.

Quiet day here, had our walk- time for chill out Sunday!

Attended a breakfast brunch at our church today and then spent a solid 6 hours cleaning the place. Last weekend found us at the retreat so no weekend cleaning done and it really needed it. Took up my entire day and I was mentally and physically exhausted by the time I left for home. Have done nothing since except read and drink a glass of red wine. It just seemed like that kind of evening.
Hope you are all doing well.

What a great looking sandbox. Fun times to come this summer!
Patti, I used to go to Luray all the time growing up in the area. Brings back memories.
A rainy day that did not include a walk. But I got to the gym early and got in a rainy day workout.
Today was mani/pedi day and I really enjoyed it.
Have a splendid evening everyone.

good evening everyone.

I spent all day in the mountains. I went to Cooters store by Luray Caverns and then drove up through the mountains. Just got back about an hour a go. A fun but exhausting day

thought I'd written a post a few days ago but it isn't here so will try again.
Past time for bed so just want to say that I enjoy reading about your activities and the sharing of ideas and opinions. Funny how we can get to know people we've never even met in person.
Lights out time, ttys,

Thanks CAT; I bought it on Amazon but did have to assemble it. When I went to a smaller refrigerator I needed it to fill the space between the refrigerator and my cabinet so the refrigerator could be centered. Got GGS's new sandbox in today; beautiful day to be outside. No coat needed.
Fits where I wanted it so he'd have shade on hot summer afternoons and holds even the big sandbox toys with the lid on. I am pleased.

Joy, what a cute storage rack. Did you make that?
We have enjoyed a nice weather day here and I got in a nice walk. Other than that I have not done anything all day that involves movement.
We are heading to the local grange for a spaghetti dinner tonight. Trying new things!!

Hi Ladies,

Our weather today has been awesome with an abundance of sunshine. I forced myself out the door and was so happy I did. It was wonderful outside I was able to put in a 5.25 mile.
Felt somuch better afterwards and it helps to make the stiffness loosen up.

The weekend is going to be sunny and warmer and that makes me a happy camper.

Hello ladies.

SUSAN: Praying for better health for you (bye bye flu bug) as you approach your holiday.
JOY: I saw that purple flower the other day but didn't think it was real. You are so lucky. Adorable photos of GGS. He always looks so happy.
Thanks for the suggestion as to how to win over the bed beckoning me. I'm not worried today since I have to return books to the library (before 5) and pick up my latest holds. That should be reason enough for me to remain mobile. I really like the idea of getting into a gentle yoga routine.
I am currently on Day 3 of actively loving myself. When I started out it felt forced but as I pictured myself as the little girl I was at age 3 it became so much easier. I know it's just a start but I feel so much better. Hope I can keep this up.
We have a 3 day weekend here in Canada so I am hoping for lots of sunshine and spring weather. Hope yours is a wonderful weekend.

Good Morning,
early morning SCAM phone call woke us up. I am so fed up witht ehB.S. these people try to pull.
We have sunshine this morning so I won't let anything ruinmy day.
I am still not feeling better but this bug will eventually run it's course and fizzle out. Going for walks makes me feel better so I will be pushing myself out the door again today to get some sunshine and fresh air.

Only 8 more days till vacation so I just have to be better by then and pray to God that hubby does not get this bug ......or Ryan.I am so afraid of Ryan catching it and causing problems. Luckily he will be going for a checkup at the transplant clinic on Thursday before we leave and praying his numbers remain stable.

I am sending out best wishes to everyone for a wonderful day and hoping that you all have sunshine in your day as well.

Good Morning, Yes getting some early flowers here; have a week of spring like weather ahead then it will get cold again. As good as it feels now; it can do some damage. We have occasionally had snow in the past in in April! Rare, but the daffodils, in full bloom, ALWAYS, get snowed on once. We'll see. Hoping that a new sandbox for GGS arrives today and I can get that in place. We worked on cleaning up that area yesterday after he did a good job for Grandma. Life is good.
